Event Summary

Tuesday 18-Thursday 20 February
Drop in to Rainham Marshes this school holidays to take part in some fabulous family activities. You can hire an explorer pack from our Visitor Centre at any time though the holidays, or there's pond dipping on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You can spend the day discovering Rainham Marshes – enjoy our family activities, play in the adventure playground, enjoy lunch or a snack in the café, and browse in our shop.
Enjoy pond-dipping - investigate what creatures you can find living in our ponds - you don't need to bring any equipment, we’ll have everything you need. It is really popular and we have limited spaces – if you would like to guarantee your time slot give us a call on 01708 899851 to book, if you turn up on the day we can usually squeeze you in but you may need to wait for a few minutes to start.

Wednesday 19 February: 10.30 am-12 noon and 1.30-3 pm
